If you go to Wu-Liu.com (joint website for hubby & myself), you'll see some pics of a bunch of us who went to see the Rockets play the Golden State warriors a couple of months ago. Being a good ol' Texan (who acts more like a SoCal dude) hubby is a HUGE Rockets fan. Being the supportive wife, I made signs to cheer on our Asian brother: Yao Ming.
Yao is awesome to watch, and he has an affable public persona. He comes across as a classy guy - unlike some of the other punks in the NBA who think they're all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips. So imagine my delight when I saw that there's a documentary called "Basketball Diplomacy: From Mao to Yao" that will air this Sunday, June 1 on MSNBC at 8PM ET, PT. It's hosted by Lisa Ling. I don't really know much about Lisa, other than the fact that she hosts (used to host?) some talk show and is (was?) dating Rick Yune.
